The Downton Chappy – Costumes of the Downton Abbey Era exhibit feature costumes from the Society’s extensive costume collection and is based on the popular TV series, Downton Abbey. Lady Grantham and her daughters always wear the latest elegant fashions of the 1920s and 30s. The soft fabrics, lavish beading and embroidery on their dresses set the tone and the time of the story. Happily, we have similar dresses in our own collection here in Chappaqua. We have a stunning satin and lace wedding gown as well as dresses suitable for receiving guests at home or a night at the opera.
We also have a selection of beaded bags, long kid gloves, and hats. One is a silver cap perfect to slip over a head of bobbed hair and dance the Charleston. We are not featuring any clothes worn by the Dowager Countess Lady Grantham. She, by her own choice, is always dressed at least one generation out of date.
Stop in for a special treat, and decide who had more style and more fun: the blue bloods of Downton Abbey, or the red blooded ladies of Chappaqua.
